to take its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways, what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going elsewhere. they are desperately trying to keep a low margin in the senate. the democrats still hold it. republicans have faint hopes of taking it. they are looking at house races, at governor races, state legislatures, they are looking at anyplace to protect themselves from what, at this minute, looks like a fairly comfortable win for president obama. that could change. it could still change. i have to stress. but there's nothing in the romney strategy so far that indicates they know how to turn it around. >> all right. howard fineman, thanks for your time tonight. good to have you here in denver. remember to answer tonight

? >> well, romney considered that path and he took that path, joe, and he tried to press his case last night. the challenge for him was to come out with the kind of aggression that could score for him while still being respectful for the president. and i think he met that challenge. he was on offense most of the time, put the president back on his heels on his record. and he challenged him directly. i thought the strongest moment that he had was when he directly challenged the president on his failure to cut the deficit over the last four years. and he cast that failure not just as a policy issue, but also as a moral issue. >> i think it's not just an economic issue. i think it's a moral issue. i think it's frankly not moral for my generation to keep spending massively more than we take in knowing those burdens will be passed on to the next generation. and they're going to be paying the interest and the principal all their lives and the amount of debt we're adding at a trillion a year is simply not moral. >> the president came back with arguments that were familiar trying to get governor rom
